One of the benefits of working from home at Automattic is meeting up with your team a few times a year in various parts of the world. Obviously that did not happen last year, won’t happen this year either and we had been playing a meetup for April or May last year but that didn’t work out.
In November 2019 I met my team in Porto, Portugal. During the week we had a day to relax so we did a tour of vineyards. After a lengthy drive we toured a couple, took a boat ride on the local river and had a nice meal in a local restaurant. The Quinta da Foz was the second vineyard we visited and it was wonderful. Old architecture and setting mixed with new technology to make wine.
Here’s the view from the road in front looking out on a tributary of the Douro River. It’s a beautiful part of Portugal.
